Notes

Notes: When I lived in Oregon in 1983 I was able to copy this source from a
local taper. I only wrote "D5" and "NR Off" on the J-card, and forgot to
write down what mics he used, although I believe it was likely Sennheisers.
The levels on the master were run somewhat hot, which is noticeable in a few
spots. The right mic dropped out for the first 1:43 of Me & My Uncle, so I
patched over it with the wav's from the left channel. The tape flip in the
second set is patched from the LAMA source, making the second set seamless.
Soundforge was used to create fades, adjust levels, repair around the tape
flips, to correct the pitch for the patched-in bits, and to do the patching.

Patches from LAMA's Aud source:
0:00 to 0:11 of Alabama Getaway
1:41 to 1:43 of Me & My Uncle
0:00 to 0:16 of Cold Rain & Snow
1:25 to 1:32 of Truckin Intro Jam

Subject: All comes back to me now.
So many years later i now remember what the feel was like. Although i enojyed every show on this tour some really stood out Park West and boise.

that said these were alot of fun the GREAT northwest. The crowd during this show here was so into it. i remember trying to dance in the isle's only to be told to get back in the row. That is until the 2nd encore of satisfaction. that was pure insanty. we were all up jumping around and siging at the top of our lungs. similar to east coast shows. Never again do i recall another west coast show with this much energy. the music was fun the sound was GREAT hard to capture the feeling on tape. yet this version here is closest of all. We were so lucky back then. Now I look back on life with all the changes we all go threw. having lost many friends on tour to OD and going to jail. And so many years later losing loved ones. Always my GG .... I miss you girl.. jhon

Yes... The levels were too high and this source is a no go.

The tetzeli 421 sounds better

I've never been in this auditorium, but these audience tapes really capture what it must've been like. Always like these smaller venue shows, such as these and Auditorium Theatre in Chicago.

Of the 3 AUD's posted here, this one seems to be the best, particularly on the low end. This is a really fine 80's show.
